The graded trio, led by GII Triple Bend S. in Santa Anita, will kick off Memorial Day weekend on Saturday afternoon.

Bruce Chandler 5 years old racing light Makena spirit (Ghostzapper) looking for a third straight win for coach George Papaprodromou after a 1 1/2 gap against his rematch opponent Forbidden Kingdom (American Pharoah) in GIII San Carlos S. last time on March 11th. Spirit of Makena was the most popular game on May 8th. The seven-man field also includes last year’s GI Breeders’ Cup Sprint runner-up and the famous 9-year-old gelding Missile CZ (City Zip), who made over $2 million.

Santa Anita’s nine-race program also features a field of seven grass-court sprinters – led by eventual and favorite Siren Lure S. winner May 9. Whatmakessammyrun (We Miss Artie)–in GIII Daytona S.

Meanwhile, a field of six 3-year-olds will line up in Belmont’s GIII Soaring Softly S., going seven long distances on the wider turf. Christophe Clement will saddle Moyglare Stud Farm and be loved in the morning 6-5 love appeal (Sightstown), who started a sharp option claiming the win in a sprint on the Aqueduct lawn on April 27.
